Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Cursd and Consequence. Check out my review and be sure to follow the tour!
When Love visits Ravenhead Hall, sparks fly…quite literally.
Miss Rea Abernathy only wants to honor the family who has taken her under their wing, rescuing her from a life of poverty. But thanks to two determined suitors, she finds herself in a state far worse than the one from which her benefactress saved her.
When Mr. Sedgwick Whitby sets his sights on his mother’s sweet-tempered pig keeper, his orderly life is thrown into chaos: Rea’s station is less–than-desirable, and another gentleman may be pursuing her. Hoping to get his annoyingly charming twin brother out of the way, Sedgwick purchases a simple curse from a disreputable faery which consequently plunges them all into a misfortune far more serious than troubles of the heart.
With time running out to break the curse and tempers flying high, can Sedgwick and Rea set things right and find love after all? Jane Austen meets dragons in this frolicking fantasy romance about a comely pig keeper, two wealthy gentlemen, and the curse binding them all together. Perfect for fans of Diana Wynne Jones and Gail Carson Levine.
Curse and Conseqence is charming, witty, funny, magical…let me just stop there because I could go on and on with praising this novel.
This is a Regency Fantasy, and I love that about it. The setting, culture, clothing all feel realistic and the descriptions are beautiful. I don’t think this story would have worked as well if it hadn’t been written in this period. It added to the wit and humor of the characters and it really helped me connect to the story.
Savannah Jezowsk has a knack for making memorable, relatable and compelling characters. I love the Whitby twins. The differences between them are vast, and definitely helped the mood of the story. The rest of the cast is fantastic as well.
Dragons, fairies, romance, fantasy, regency, and curses all come together in this novel to make a really fantastic read. I cannot wait to continue in this story! Highly recommended.
